Wine of the week

1994 Vallformosa Penedes Red Table Wine, Vall Reserva ($10).

This Spanish red wine is one of the most seductive, supple, mature-tasting red wines you will find at this price. Only 4 years old, it has the feel and enticing aroma of a fine red that has been aged a decade or more. The Vallformosa caresses the palate with lush blackberry fruit, seasoned with subtle herbal nuances. Wine drinkers who have a problem with the tannins in young red wines will love this precocious masterpiece. Serve it with a fine cut of beef or lamb.
